Rouge Allure Laque Luminous Lip Lacquer feels like a spa on the lips. My lips feel like they have been spoiled. The formula is rich in jojoba oil and a high dose of pigments. The pigment power is superior. Color payoff is dense and rich. The texture of the lippie is silk-like and avoids the pitfalls of lacquer formulas. There is no tacky or greasy feeling. It leaves a smooth finish like a balm.
Rouge Allure Laque's foam applicator is shaped like a fountain pen. It covers the lip in one swipe. The container is well engineered. It twists open in two to three rotations. It also closes quickly and securely.
The lippie's inspiration comes from the Coromandel walls in Chanel's apartment. The shades range from reds to shimmering browns.
Ming 76 is a warm dusty pink.
Dragon 75 is a brick red.
Imperial 73 is a pink based brown
Other shades in the collection are as follows:
Coromandel 72 is a orange red
Dynastie 74 is a pink brown
Santal 77 is a peach
Phoenix 78 is a powdery pink
Mandarin 79 is a coral brown
The lippies will be available at your local Chanel counter or chanel.com in October 2009.
They will retail for $32.
